Connect to server over web

Hello,

A small question here:

I have created a server and I can connect easily on it on local network. However, when I ask a friend from a remote place to host the server and that I try to connect to it, I fail. I tried on several ports (including 8080) with no success.

Is there something special to do for connecting across another network ? Or is the problem should come from port forwarding / firewalls and stuff like that ?

Thanks by advance,

Pierree

Supposedly the Master Server provides functionality to make this work easily, but I've never actually gotten it to work properly (for various reasons) so I'm honestly not sure!

If i understand it right, the Master server is a server used to list and access a number of servers for your game. I can try using it, however I only need one server running and I wonder if it would be really necessary.

That was just a problem of port forwarding. :)
